We were able to picture some of the scenes - and yes, there are sheep on the grounds - still! We won't go into technical detail of the visit too much. We stopped in the park across the road from the pub to have lunch and were entertained by the antics of some fast beer consuming patrons in their make-shift 'al fresco' lounge area on the footpath, with none other than a sheep huddled amongst them.
Going into Trundle is like going into a town from the wild west movies with many buildings preserved from early in the last century.
Adding to its past era impression is the main street, so wide that you could drive a cattle herd through.
First stop we turned into was the Parkes Radio Telescope, affectionately dubbed "The Dish" - a chance to tick off an item on Kym's bucket list.
This radio telescope was the setting for the 2000 movie shot in 1969 about Australia's involvement in the Apollo 11 moon landing. At the junction of the road to Trundle, and 30 kms west of Parkes is the town of Bogan Gate.
Just off the Newell Highway, the approach to the telescope grounds goes past a driveway that was familiar to us from the movie. We are sorry Bogan Gate, but you really did seem to live up to your name.

Dubbo has been the backdrop for a good share of trials and tribulations for us as we have had major work done on each visit to this mid NSW city - a busted suspension on the van, a wind damaged awning and the latest was repairs to the fuel system on the Patrol after a series of breakdowns in the area. Is it any wonder that we planned to travel short distances around the Dubbo region to help regain our confidence in the vehicle before we headed into isolated areas out at Bourke and beyond.Western Plains Nissan had replaced all injectors (for the second time within days) and also the fuel rail - all under warranty, but they still could not tell us what had caused the problem. We decided to do a run heading south to Parkes, and then north-west, via Trundle, Tullamore and Albert, almost completing a circle up to Trangie, which is only 30 odd kms west of Dubbo.Meet thousands of local Kempsey singles, as the worlds largest dating site we make dating in Kempsey easy!Plentyoffish is 100% Free, unlike paid dating sites.You will get more interest and responses here than all paid dating sites combined!Over 1,500,000 Daters login every day to Plentyoffish.com, we are the market leader in Canada, UK, Australia, US, Ireland and New Zealand, so come meet and chat with other Kempsey singles Register HERE The only 100% Free dating service.
